The Ins and Outs of AIS with Bob Gad

Sailing Solo to Bermuda on a Floating Hotel; Tips to Get Speed and Sleep

On Saturday January 20th, 2018 10:00 am CANE's own Phil Haydon (owner, sailor, and racer of Prairie Gold, a 2009 Catalina 350) presented Sailing Solo to Bermuda on a Floating Hotel; Tips to Get Speed and Sleep.

 

Phil races Prairie Gold offshore regularly and while she is essentially a stock Catalina 350 he has made some modifications for comfort and speed...some no or low cost, some medium cost, and some more expensive. 

 

He discussed those modifications (which apply to boats other than the 350) and weaved that in with a tale about sailing from Newport to Bermuda singlehanded in the Bermuda 1-2 race (taking 3rd in class). 

 

This event was held at Weymouthport Condominiums 73 Broad Reach, Weymouth, MA (the same venue where we held the radar seminar last April).

Suddenly Alone with Jill Clement

On March 25th 2-4PM Jill Presented a Suddenly Alone Seminar.

 

Jill helped the group look at the reality of what it's like to be suddenly singlehanded on your boat.  What you can realistically do to prepare and to be ready to react confidently. What equipment you might consider, and some techniques you might not have thought of.  It was sharing of ideas and experiences.

Jill is a lifelong sailor, an American Sailing Association (ASA) certified sailing instructor and an adult leader of the local Sea Scout Ship 1909.  In the sailing season she can be found at EGYC at least 3 nights a week teaching adult sailing and safety for the Greenwich Bay Sailing Association or sailing with the scouts. Jill is most happy when she and Matt are out and about in their Catalina 380, attending OSCA rendezvous, playing mother ship to the sea scouts on overnight cruises or just sitting on the mooring polishing the bright work.
